A reason to write again- my daughter

Yesterday we saw you and for the first time knew you are a girl.

Light and dark, shapes and lines,
 bits of you came to the screen. 

Gasps, shaking heads, silly grins
 and two proud brothers,

who knew the whole time.

New adventure awaits us:

pinks and purples

giggles and squeals

late night talks

early morning feedings.

I am here for you, girl-child.

I am here to shine a light on the path I have taken
leading me to be a woman.

You will have to walk your path,
 finding strength, purpose and dignity along the way.

I promise to pour into you all the love I can, to fill you up with hope and faith.

To walk with you in laughter, tears and silence.


  1. Beautiful, Monica! And SO very exciting! I am very, very happy for you all :)

  2. Congratulations! What a blessing. :>

  3. So delighted! Hugs to all.

  4. Oh my gosh!!! I'm SO SO happy hearing the news!! Congratulations!!! Love to you all!

  5. Pink laundry, dollies scattered around the house, hairties and headbands, tea parties, and stories that are too girly for boys to be interested in. . . . Yay for a girl!
